Although labor-community alliances have always been a fundamental part of the struggle for social justice, the U.S. witnessed a relative paucity of labor- community coalition building as U.S. society was held under the sway of Cold War liberalism until the recent resurgence in the 1990s. Thirteen chapters, presented by Reynolds (Labor Studies Center, Wayne State U.), examine this resurgence in general and specific terms. The dynamics of coalition building are explored in chapters looking at interactions between unionists and environmentalists, labor and the religious community, and labor and low-income community groups such as ACORN. Other chapters are more prescriptive, discussing common issues around which coalitions can be built or exploring the nuts and bolts of institution building. All but one of the chapters in this collection were originally published in Working USA , a quarterly journal. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
